Builtbycalvin on Instagram found something neat on the back of the upcoming Magical Treasury book. it reads: "Explore: Hagrids hut, Newt Scamanders case, Diagon Alley, Privet Drive" Seeing as the book releases July 7th, and there is a possibility of a press release of Diagon alley in July, do you think it's possible the book will reveal the set, or do you think it'll just be a custom build or the microscale DA from 2018? Could mean something, could mean nothing, but I found this info worth sharing. (sorry if this has been seen and/or talked about before, I just recently joined Eurobricks and haven't had time to read through the first 300 pages lol).

 

It’s possible the book covers the original run of the theme as well, which included the 2011 D2C and a few individual shops as sets too.

It seems odd that they did a set for the first task, but neither of the other two. Maybe they were deemed too dark, as a lot of other potentially dark scenes such as in the Shrieking shack/Whomping Willow with werewolf-Lupin and the battle at the Department of Mysteries with the death of Sirius haven't had sets yet. But I agree that they're more likely to come in sets than the CMF

They did make the revival of Voldemort, complete with the “ingredients” to revive him. Making a werewolf Lupin set would be feasible, they’ve done them before. But yeah, other than omitting Sirius(which would be a bone headed move) from a Dept. of Mysteries battle, I don’t know how they could clean it up for the kids.

It would be a difficult one, but maybe they will risk it. After all, they have done sets for other themes like Vader's transformation in Star Wars, which is an undeniably heavy scene. I imagine whatever they do for the Dept. of Mysteries, they might just avoid the arch entirely, as that's where the intense stuff comes from

I think just not including the arch or Bellatrix would make it perfectly doable. We got the same Bellatrix in The Burrow, and Sirius doesn’t die without Bellatrix or the arch. Just include Harry, Sirius, Lucius, and maybe another student and another Order member. I think the Dumbledore/Voldemort Duel should be it’s own separate set

Yeah, there's loads of playability to have with the hallway and falling orbs. Maybe a set like that could connect to the main atrium with a Dumbledore/Voldemort duel. Either way, I'd love a telephone box that descends into the hall :laugh_hard:

I will never again believe that LEGO shies away from "dark" scenes.  They do what they think people want to buy, and in the case of HP, I'm okay with that.

I’m still holding out hope for an Inferi cave set. Might be the set I want the most after Chamber Of Secrets Fluffy, and Ministry Battle sets. Harry with his red jacket, exclusive Dumbledore, some Inferi. Great set opportunity there

Regarding the topic of death scenes: In other themes, there’s plenty of sets featuring characters and/or locations involved in a character‘s death. Of course it‘s a bit more prevalent with villains (Palpy, Jabba, Boba Fett, Snoke, Maul, the villain triumvirate in Lone Ranger, the villain duumvirate from Fallen Kingdom, Azog, the Mouth of Sauron), but the same goes for protagonists as well (Qui-Gon, A LOT of starfighter pilots, Thorin, Star-Lord, Drax).

Moreover, it’s happened within the WW theme before :wink: One of the PS sets back in the day provided everything to recreate Quirrel’s death scene and the 2011 Forbidden Forest set basically depicted Harry‘s „death“ scene. Plus, the set loosely based on the Battle of Hogwarts included Lupin and Goyle. I think people are too hung up with the omission of Cedric from the Rise of Voldemort set, which has multiple valid explanations (cost, the fact this version was already featured as a CMF minifig, the availability of Cedric in other sets etc).

Was the rumoured Battle of the Department of Mysteries set debunked? Or is that still on the table?

Nope, that has solidly been debunked :laugh: One of a certain devious individual‘s many falsehoods

Well either Lego is going to make it Fri-yay or we're not getting a CMF reveal this week. :(

Yeah it sure is dragging out for us. Every reveal for this theme seems to do that so I guess we should all be used to it. There’s always a rumor that a reveal will happen and then it doesn’t happen for another week or two. Every time.

I‘ve been digging a bit and so far, Brickshop are the only ones with an August release date. If the info from the catalogue and the initial rumours of a September release are correct, this would be way too early for an official reveal. I‘m afraid we won‘t see anything until at least mid-July

I know. My gut was telling me if wasn't going to happen this week, but you still hold out hope. :(

Look at it this way; for every day the chance for reveal increases both for the CMF and DA :wink:

Haha yea what more can you do. I can't believe we're so near to another HP CMF. I still remember the time, place and joy ... the exact moment I saw the first HP CMF on my phone two years ago. So looking forward to experiencing that again. It's so so close now ... 😊

The announcement that LEGO HP was coming back was one of the best pieces of LEGO-related news I've ever come home to. I remember just seeing the new Harry minifigure on Pottermore's Instagram, and thinking "that's not the Harry minifig" :laugh_hard: what a time it was

New thread I made:

We already have a thread with the same purpose, it's just not very active as 90% of people's ideas are pretty much exactly the same

There is no reason to expect the CMF reveal anytime soon

If this happens, it would be a surprise, but I wouldn't get my hopes up. The September series are usually revealed around the time the SDCC takes place, which is 2nd week on July. 

Also, a lot of stores got Series 20 late because of Coronavirus (or were closed) so, I would't be surprised if the Harry Potter Series 2 reveal is pushed back a little bit. I would expect it on early August.

Quick question, but I'm considering just buying a box of the cmf when it comes out, but I've never done that before. For those of you who have, where do you get it from? Do you just go into the shop and pick it up? What's the price they go for in pounds? Also, how many packs come in a box? Sorry for all these questions, but it's confusing :grin:
